Solution

The correct option is B Cytotaxonomy
Cytotaxonomy is classification based on cytological characteristics of the cell including the size, structure, number of chromosomes and behaviour of chromosomes during meiosis.

Chemotaxonomy is the method of biological classification based on similarities an differences in the structure of certain chemical compounds among the organisms being classified.

Karyotaxonomy deals with the classification of living organisms based on the phylogenetic relationship between organisms as determined by the structure of nucleus, the number, type and arrangements of chromosomes in the organisms.
